If you are a new business owner or in the process of starting your own business, be sure check out our Professional development resources linked below for up-to-date trainings and resources  to help you run a successful business. SEEC associates can help you navigate the business of being a business owner,  regardless of the stage of your enterprise! 

Even if you’re at the early stages of your business, with just an idea – or you’ve recently  opened up your doors to customers – or if you’ve been in business for decades, SEEC  can help point you in the right direction for whatever it is you need. 


A business plan is a formal written document containing business goals, the methods on  how these goals can be attained, and the time frame within which these goals need to  be achieved. It also describes the nature of the business, background information on the  organization, the organization’s financial projections, and the strategies it intends to  implement to achieve the stated targets. In its entirety, this document serves as a road  map that provides direction to the business. 

Not only is a business plan a key tool in helping you to shape the trajectory of your  business, often times, it is a NECESSARY DOCUMENT required for things like a business  loan or grant application. 

Not sure where to start? Check out some business plan templates below, along with  links to common forms you will need to get your business started and off the ground.
